Description

This new edition has artwork from award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell.

Lettie Peppercorn lives in a house on stilts near the wind-swept coast of Albion. Nothing incredible has ever happened to her, until one winter’s night, when the night the Snow Merchant comes. He claims to be an alchemist – the greatest that ever lived – and in his suitcase, he carries his newest invention: snow.
